Hey there fiesta Lad. Is this for your fiesta?

What size are your tyres? - Code on the tyre wall

two different makes on the front isnt a major problem as such, but it certainly isn't ever recommended

lol, typical Fiesta Lad posting about his Fiesta in the Ka section ;)
One of the many reasons why you're FOC's Runner Up Member Of The Year 2010, second only to KeithC

You probably wont notice any difference in the handling

You can get brand new budget tyres for your car for less than £30

How much would part worn tyres cost? If its more than 10 quid I would get new ones seeing as they're so cheap

:lol: Did'nt even get onto it i was posting in the ka section :lol: part worn tyres are 15 i did buy brand new tyres a while ago for about 23 they were called steel belted radical the worst tyres ever not a smooth ride and very noisy but i surpose you get what you pay for for that price.

personally i would only use new tyres but...

i would rather have a part worn quality tyre over a budget one anyday! you may not know the history of a part worn but a good inspection before fitting may reveal any problems.
